Kenneth “Cat Daddy” Pogson and Tres Shannon have taken Doughnuts to WHOLE NEW “Yeast Rising Level”.
They set out to fulfill a dream of starting a business together.

Having no Doughnut experience or knowledge about baking, icings, and fillings, they did what many entrepreneurs to be’s, should do-learn and work with the masters before venturing on their own.

Voodoo Doughnut has been featured on the Travel Channel’s series by Anthony Bourdain No Reservations, Man vs. Food, Doughnut Paradise. 

It was a destination in the season finale of the 13th season of The Amazing Race, 2010 television documentary The Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special – In 3-D!

Jay Leno included Voodoo Doughnut in a Tonight Show opening monologue: “Did you hear about the doughnut shop in Portland, Oregon, that has caffeinated doughnuts? Yeah, I guess you can stay awake during your bypass surgery.”

The shop’s doughnuts, including the distinctive box, appeared in a fourth-season episode of the TNT drama series Leverage. This episode of the show, which films in Portland, was the first actually set in that city.

Additionally, the pink box has appeared in the second episode of season one of Grimm and the episode “Like a Virgin” of Supernatural.
